Baby gifts

My sweet niece is expecting her first baby, it is so exciting, she and her dear hubby will be excellent parents.  I wanted to make a baby blanket for her little guy so purchased some fabric from a friend in Idaho, learned how to do mitered corners from another blog and embroidered his name on the blanket.  To compete the project I also made him a sock monkey.  I cross stitched the eyes and sewed them on, but I'm not real thrilled with the outcome, my DH says they look fine, so I'm going to take his word for it.  I guess some baby monkeys do kind of have strange looking eyes, so I guess they'll do.  Here are the results!

I like the cross-stitched eyes... gives them more life! Excellent job on the blanket, too!
